Will the real ‘poster boy of Pakistan’ please stand up

Disregarding the country by showcasing more trust in Pakistan's version than our own defence forces has only, yet again, displayed Congress' deep sense of loyalty and fondness for the neighbouring country, which has forever been in a state of war with India

Congress president Rahul Gandhi is up to his theatrics yet again with his press conference in Delhi today. On one hand Rahul sought registration of an FIR against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “corruption” in the Rafale deal, a cock and bull story which the Congress supremo has been peddling for almost an epoch now, and almost in the same breath, speaking on Indo-Pak relations, Rahul Gandhi said, “PM got ISI to Pathankot, went to meet Nawaz Sharif, he is the poster boy of Pakistan”.

Under Modi’s leadership, avenging the dastardly Pulwama attack executed by Pakistan sponsored Jaish-e-Mohammad, which claimed the lives of our 44 CRPF soldiers, the Indian Air Force had carried out a pre-emptive attack to destroy terror camps operated by Jaish-e-Muhammad terrorists.

Six different locations in the area spread over 60 acres in Balakot, had been bombarded by the IAF in the early hours of February 26. Indian Air Force Mirage 2000 fighters destroyed multiple terrorist camps deep inside Pakistan territory.

Modi had in clear words promised to avenge the cowardly Pulwama terror attack and undoubtedly kept his words. So the question here is, who is then the real ‘poster boy of Pakistan’?

One can remember Congress toeing Pakistan’s line. The ‘Aman-ka-tamasha’ has gone on for as long as one can remember. Just as a leopard doesn’t change his spots, Congress and its leaders fraternising with the enemy have come as no surprise.

On 18th February 2007, two bombs exploded in the Samjhauta Express, a train that connects New Delhi and Lahore. The blasts resulted in the death of 68 passengers including 3 Railway Policemen. Most of the civilian victims were Pakistani nationals.

Though reports had suggested the involvement of Pakistan based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba in the blast, the Congress considering its special proclivity towards Pakistan had built a completely different conclusion and blamed “Saffron Terrorists” for the blast. According to reports in 2010, the NIA was apparently ‘convinced’ that Swami Aseemanand, a Right Wing Leader was the main mastermind behind the blasts.

It should also be noted that the same “Hindu outfit” was blamed by none other than the Congress for Malegaon blasts too, and Sadhvi Pragya was arrested in that case.

Similarly, November 26, 2008, was indeed a dark day in India’s history. 10 members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, an Islamic terrorist organisation based in Pakistan, carried out a series of 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks lasting four days across Mumbai. While the terrorists were eventually killed, one of them was captured alive: Ajmal Kasab. In early 2009, Pakistan admitted that Kasab was indeed a Pakistani citizen.

Congress going by its propensity had then too used the sordid incident to play its dirty tricks. A leaked WikiLeaks document revealed how the Congress party played politics over the 26/11 Mumbai attacks. The UPA Minority Affairs Minister had then attached a ‘Hindutva terror’ rhetoric behind the attack.

Rahul Gandhi, who is now all out questioning the NDA government on the Balakot air strike needs to probably be reminded of the insensitivity he had shown soon after the 26/11 attack. While Congress government did not even retaliate, Rahul Gandhi was out partying while the country struggled in the wake of a terror attack.

In fact, while the world was holding Pakistan responsible for 26/11, then Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh & close aide of Rahul Gandhi, had shamelessly released the book “26/11 RSS Ki Saazish?” (26/11, An RSS Conspiracy?).

And now, Congress and its functionaries seem to have rediscovered an ally in Pakistan after the people of India abandoned them electorally. Be it from Congress loyalist, Navjot Singh Sidhu’s love for Pakistan PM, ‘Taliban Khan‘, by thanking them for the “noble gesture” of making the corridor available for the pilgrimage, to his ever-controversial hug extended towards the Pakistan Army chief, General Bajwa, to his disgraceful remark on Pulwama attack, defending Pakistan by saying ‘terrorism has no nationality’.

Sidhu’s decision to visit Pakistan was defended by Congress. It was called ‘a step in the right direction’. The Congress also dismissed criticism about Sidhu not just attending Khan’s swearing-in at a time of national mourning over the demise of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee but also hugging the Pakistan Army Chief.

Sidhu’s shenanigans aren’t very different from Congress leaders Mani Shankar Aiyar and Salman Khurshid who created a squabble over their remarks in Pakistan criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Then too, Congress supported its leaders.

Mani Shankar Aiyar, the Congress leader who is supposed to be close to the Nehru-Gandhi family and has been known for his pro-Pakistan statements, courted controversy when he hailed Mohammad Ali Jinnah for his role in the freedom movement and even referred to him as ‘Quaid-e-Azam’. In a bid to defend his statements on Jinnah, he later praised Pakistan for its ‘tolerance’ and prevailing conditions to express his views.

The entire Congress syndicate, who are silent admirers of the terrorist country and have subtly reflected Pakistan’s ideologies, had created a hog-wash by temporarily ‘suspending’ Mani Shankar Aiyer, who has been a frequent visitor to Pakistan and has not shied away from expressing his love for the terror state, Pakistan.

In a similar incident earlier, the controversial Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam had stirred a row by calling the surgical strikes against Pakistan, ‘fake’ and has asked the BJP government to provide proof.

The Congress loyalist, Shashi Tharoor had also followed his parties ideological path while standing firm by his ‘Hindu Pakistan’ remarks.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also charged Congress withholding a secret meeting with Pakistan delegates. The charges of which were earlier refuted by the Congress and later after a long spell of silence, a shoddy explanation was provided.

In fact, if one looks closely, the actions and the political discourse of Congress is in many ways a shadow of Pakistan’s mentality. From Congress leader, Hamid Ansari coming out to voice his support to the Sharia courts, a system that allows child marriage, polygamy and has provisions for rapists to go free by paying money, and Nikah-Halala to Congress leader and lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi defending the abhorrent and barbaric practice of Female Genital Mutilation, Congress had done it all.

One remembers how Rahul Gandhi supported the ‘Tukde Tukde Gang’ in the name of freedom of expression. One also remembers P Chidambaram wanting “autonomy for Kashmir”. And do we recall the letter that surfaced that said Congress was to provide funds, arms and legal help to Maoists? Do we remember the caste trouble during Padmaavat and how Congress was at the helm? Pakistan maligns the Indian Army. Do we remember Congress asking for proof of surgical strike, thereby maligning our forces? Do we remember the WikiLeaks that confirmed what Rahul Gandhi thought: “Hindu Extremists” are more dangerous than LeT?

And now, in the latest, with the list just becoming longer, the Congress party continues echoing Pakistan in claiming that the Indian airstrikes in Pakistan did not hit any terror camp and demands proof of the strike, now comments made by Congress leaders are being used by Pakistan in spreading their propaganda.

So here lies the question: ‘who is the real poster boy of Pakistan?’

Disregarding the country by showcasing more trust in Pakistan’s version than our own defence forces has only, yet again, displayed Congress’ deep sense of loyalty and fondness for the neighbouring country, which has forever been in a state of war with India.

The disgraceful comments coming from Congress bigwigs like Digvijaya Singh to the controversial leader, Navjot Singh Siddhu, questioning the government on the Balakot airstrike, in turn, displays their mistrust in the Indian Armed forces. Traitors like these provide enough substance to Pakistani media to build fictional narratives to attack India with.

It’s truly bothersome that India now has double responsibilities. It has to fight with enemies outside the country as well as the enemies within.
